apparently unfounded. nasa is using radar and other technology to study how the asteroid behaves, including its rotation rate, its composition and how it's impacted by the earth's gravity. the idea is to learn enough to prevent cat as it sfroe fee from it threatening in the future. >> we're going to get a lot of information about the asteroid. we're interested in its future motion, whether or not it could come back, whether it threatens the earth. >> reporter: the odds are either this one or another will be back. an asteroid impact the earth about every 120 years on average. it will be visible in the northern hemisphere this evening if you have access to a telescope. for now it's on its way away from the earth out into outer space harmlessly rotating -- or resolving -- excuse me. harmlessly rotating -- i can't even think of the right word. orbiting the sun. harmlessly at least for now, jim. >> casey, thanks very much. we appreciate it. ? or gal lat particular news, a meteor lit up the skies over eastern russia. the blinding light was followed by a series of deafening explosions. listen to t
to earth. this is video of nasa tracking the asteroid as it moves across the sky -- it is about the size of a football field. at its closest point, the asteroid, which is named 20-12 d-a-14, was just more than 17-thousand miles above the earth's surface. that's lower than some satellites. and while it's too far away to see with naked eye -- there is at least one spot you can go to check it out tonight. we'll show you where -- coming up at 5:30 will you could certainly see the sun out there for today is shining brightly. warm temperatures around the bay area. it is in the '70s in many locations. san francisco not a cloud in the sky. temperatures in san francisco at 70 degrees. low '70's in a lot of places. '70s for a sunnyvale and san jose. 75 degrees in oakland. absolutely beautiful day today. it's going to hang out for most of the weekend. in the meantime look for clear skies tonight. a little bit of patchy fog and a warm day tomorrow but another warm day look for highs in the '70s. things will be pulled down in san francisco but still a warm day. and a few minutes will share next week.
is at the nasa ames center in mountain view this morning to talk to us more about the meteor and then also the timing of it all because a big space rock is headed toward earth. >> reporter: yes, that's exactly right, frank and michelle. to every you go more information about that meteor though, russian scientists say that meteor entered earth's atmosphere about 33,000 miles per hour and hit the ground. more than 700 people are recovering from the meteor's shockwaves that fall caused explosions that broke glass over a wide area and it caught most people off guard. >> terrified. i just hit the snooze bar on my iphone for another nine minutes of sleep and all of a sudden, i fell back asleep and i hear this loud bang! >> reporter: now, this comes on the same day an asteroid known as 2012da14 is headed towards earth. it will make the closest fly-by of an object its size. the meteor and the asteroid are not related. it's coincidence that they are both happening in the same time frame. researchers say this asteroid is not expected to make an impact on earth.
a collapsed wall, replacing and boarding up blown-out windows. nasa says this was the biggest meteor to hit earth in over a century, weighing more than the eiffel tower, its explosion in the atmosphere, the equivalent of 30 hiroshima bombs. officials say over 1,200 people were injured, over 4,000 buildings damaged and over a million square feet of glass shattered. the size of about 20 football fields. there are broken storefronts and windows like this one all around the city, you can see them all the way down the street behind me. the city is littered with broken glass that caused most of the injuries. the hunt is on for fragments that hit the ground, divers searched this frozen lake where one piece is thought to have created this massive hole in the ice. meteor hunters from around the world are calling this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. >> a small piece could be worth thousands of dollars. bigger chunks, hundreds of thousands. >> no doubt that millions and millions in value, pieces fell to earth. >> the frozen ground and snow will help preserve the meteor debris. a new cosmic gold r
them. so nasa is very good the at finding the much larger ones. but these smaller ones we as humans have not put a lot of effort into it. at the planetary society, we have people that are interested in it and we found this one. >> i want to bring in jason carroll, at the new york museum of natural history. tell us what you're learn building this huge astroid that will get very close to us today. >> well, let me give you some perspective. this meteorite is just about roughly the size of a car, i would say. da-14 which will be swinging by the earth later on this afternoon is about half the size of a football field. so much, much, much larger. and it will be traveling at a rate of about 17,450 miles per hour. that's something like 4.8 miles per second. so it's traveling at an incredible rate. weighs much larger than the meteorite you see behind me here. it will pass by at it closest point about 2:24 p.m. eastern standard time. if you're in indonesia, that is your best vantage point to see. it will be dark there at that particular time. but if you have a telescope, you should be able to
, it was the sonic boom that caused the damage. now, that's the only old of this world story today. nasa says an asteroids half the size of a football field will miss earth today by 17,000 miles, that actually is very, very close. it's the closest known fly by for a rock of that size. it will pass inside orbitting satellites. don't worry it will not hit the earth. we are relybly informed. democrats continue to push, tax the rich. the latest pitch in 54 billion dollars brand new taxes on the rich and national review columnist joins me next and back on the opening bell which will be interesting this morning, in just a moment. my new hearing aids instantly changed my life - i feel so much younger. my husband has his confidence back. and he can enjoy the laughter of our grandkids again. i can have fun with my friends again. feeling isolated? ready to reconnect? the aarp hearing care program provided by hearusa can help. call hearusa at ... for a free hearing check-up. plus, receive a free $50 dining card when you get your free hearing check up. aarp members receive a 20% discount on breakthrough
with our telescopes. thanks to australia and nasa we can see imagery coming in from the eastern hemisphere. astronomers worldwide are watching, excited but not too worried. >> this asteroid is half a football field long but roughly the size of a 12 story building like this. and that is big enough to wipe out a city. but scientists say that is not going to happen. the real threat here though, is to communication satellites like the ones we use at fox news. the geosynchronous at 22,000 miles around the earth. at 1:24 eastern this asteroid penetrated the plane. there is no report of a satellite hit. it must exit the plane at 2:24 eastern. but scientists do not expect any collisions to happen. this is not only one out there. they are flying near earth's orbit. astronomers and telescopes around the planet are always looking up. >> we've seen and tracked about 9,000 of them right now. and about a thousand of them are potentially hazardous. so we look at those carefully. it turns out we're safe from those for many hundreds of years. >> the 1908 event in russia which leveled, wiped out forests for
the kind of objects that nasa cannot predict ahead of time. they're too small to actually track. the as asteroid that's passing the earth later this afternoon is an object that nasa can pick up ahead of time and can track. by the way, the two events are not related in any way. it's just a chance circumstance that both of these happened on the same day. >> okay. well, let's talk more about this asteroid. as we said, we know that's coming. so every ten years we can expect this sort of thing that happened over russia to happen somewhere in the world and there's not much we can do about it? >> no. there's no way really to predict objects that small coming into the earth atmosphere. tellus museum here is part of the network of nasa set up with fireball cameras. we have several in the southeast. and a few in the west. and this is part of a project, an effort, to track bright meteors. and we track about 8 to 12 bright meteors every night over cartersville. but when we link it with other cameras, we can tell how fast, how high, and even plot where in the solar system these smaller objec
. >> it's no small he skprent shows you the destructive nature of the objects. >> what nasa says it was not was part of this asteroid. it buzzed clo to earth today. 100 tons races towards earth every day. national safety counsel estimates you're twice as likely to be struck by lightning than hit by an asteroid but three times more likely than being injured by fire works. 20,000 troops have been sent to help residents. those people are spending a night without windows temperatures in that part of russia are well below zero tonight. >> a giant asteroid talking about has nothing to do with the meteor that hit russia. that one hurled past earth today just before 11:30 our time. astroners used binoculars to watch the point of light speeding across the sky. >> breaking news in antioch. sky 7 caught the scene of what we believe is a shooting in a gas station or perhaps a burger king restaurant near dear valley high school. a person has been handcuffed after the scene. the investigation station has been roped off. the call came in as a shooting at burger king. police have not told fuss a
damaged, and more than a million square feet of glass shattered the size of 20 football fields. nasa says it's the biggs meteor to hit the earth in more than 100 years. one piece is believed to created a huge hole in this frozen lake. drivers are searching for fragments. meteor hunters would like to get their hands on a piece of the rofnlgt it could be pretty valuable, depending hundred big it is. >> there's no doubt that millions and million of dollars in value, pieces, fell to the earth. >> hours after the meteor hit russia, scientists said the asteroid missed the earth by only 17,000 miles, coming closer than satellites and late friday night, fire ball lit up the sky over san francisco. it turn out to be a meteor or shooting star, nothing to do with the one in russia. >> ama: new at 11:00, an east bay man suffered only minor cuts after losing control of his brand new motorcycle and slamming into a house. the incident happened in antioch this evening. police said the man was on his driveway, doing some sort of maneuver with the bike, when he lost control. the 2013 harley davidson smashe
to nasa, this was the biggest meteor to hit earth in over a century. weighing more than the eiffel tower. today, the search is on to find fragments that hit the ground. divers explore this frozen lake where one of the bigger chunks is thought to left a big hole in the ice. but they came up empty-handed. the site is a tourist spot for locals, wanting to see it for themselves. i want to show you something. this is the reason that so many people got injured, the broken glass. many checked on the big flash to the sky. and when they got there, the blast blew the windows out and sent the glass flying. >> extraordinary. kirit, thank you. and collectors are looking to buy remnants of that meteorite. >>> a powerful, new entry in the debate over gun control. the mother of hadiya pendleton made this video. >> a piece of my heart is gone. congress is debating how to fix our gun laws. they can start with background checks for all gun sales. tell congress to support common sense reforms so no more innocent children are killed. and no parent has to go through this heartbreak. >> this ad comes in the mi

scientists can see cosmic rocks coming our way, doing something about it is the tricky part. in theory, nasa would be able to knock a threatening incoming asteroid off orbit so it misses earth. but there's very little precedent for that. the only thing that comes close was a 2005 mission where nasa steered a probe about the size of a coffee table into an oncoming docket, a project known as -- comet, a prooj knoject kn "deep comet." >> with the they're tess should work fine, certainly there would be details in launching a massive object into space, making sure we guide it correctly so it will hit the right spot on the asteroid to knock it appropriately off-course. >> reporter: scientists say these events, the meteor in russia and the asteroid's close call, should be a wake-up call. if the asteroid instead of missing earth had impacted, say, washington, d.c., it would have been devastating. >> if it's dense enough and could hit the earth intact, the impact crater itself would not be that big. but the effects from the shockwave and the heat from impact would be enough to basically wipe out ever
? nasa says it was likely a meteor. not a space rock that streaked across skies over russia where 1,000 are recovering from injuries. the damage estimate for that, $33 million. and that happened on the same day that an asteroid half the size of a football field did a drive-by, passing 17,000 miles above earth. dr. hakin oleshegy is a scientist at the florida institute of technology and spokesperson for the science channel. nice to have you with us this morning. >> good morning. i'm happy to be here. >> first we need to clear up a few thing. initially we were calling that space rock in russia a meteorite. but it actually of an asteroid as well as the other one. >> well, you know, the naming of these rocks is kind of interesting, right? this object originated in the asteroid belt, so it is an asteroid. when it became streaking through our skies, we call it a meteor. then when it became a fireball, we called it a bolide. when the part hit the ground, fragments, we call those meteorites. >> i think i followed all that. >> yeah. >> you started off with the fact that it came from the aste
.s.-based telescopes to get a good look. but in australia some imagery is available and coming in thanks to nasa. as for a direct hit, well, astronomers worldwide are watching, they're excited but not worried. this asteroid's about half a football field long or roughly the size of a 12-story building like this. that certainly is big enough to wipe out a city, but scientists say at least today that is not going to happen. the real threat, though small, is to communications satellites like the ones we at fox news use. the geosynchronous plane is 22,000 miles around the earth, and da14 penetrates at 1:24 eastern, just a little more than an hour from now, coming 17,000 miles from earth, exiting at 3:24. satellite companies have been warned. they do not expect any satellite will actually be hit though. with about a million asteroids and meteors flying around earth's orbit, astronomers and telescopes around the planet are constantly looking up. >> we've seen and trackedded about 9,000 of them right now, and about a thousand of them are potentially hazardous. so we look at those carefully, and it turns
